Traditional Sports


This sport is believed to have originated in ancient India. Wrestling is particularly popular in the Northern part of India with a healthy rivalry among the three key states, Punjab, Haryana and Delhi. The game is unique in its own ways. It is totally a teacher-centric game, and the art of the game is mastered through long years of endeavor in the master’s residence. The relation between master or guru and the disciples are that of unconditional devotion and commitment towards each other and the game. You can catch a piece of ancient India, in one of these Wrestling tutelage called, “Akhras”, where the traditional master-disciple relation still continues.
